Why are the phase indicators different between the open loop bode plot and the closed loop bode plot?

I have an open-loop transfer function G num=105*conv([1 1],[1 2 43.25]); den=conv([2 0 0],conv([1 2 82],[1 2 101])); G=tf(num,den); and a closed-loop function of G/(1+G). Here are the open-loop bode ...

Looking for a linear actuator that can carry a transverse load? Does such a product exist?

I am looking for a product that works like a linear actuator where you can control how far it extends but it can also hold a transverse load at the furthest point of extension. What I am looking for ...

Is it possible to calculate Over Shoot percentage and settling time of an Underdamped 2nd order system with Ramp input?

Most of the books derive Over Shoot percentage, settling time for 2nd order underdamped it for unit step response. Do these parameters exist for 2nd order underdamped system for Ramp response too? If ...

Quality of the transient response for an arbitrary transfer function

The question is simple and I rather need a reference point. How the parameters of transients are estimated (as in the picture) from an arbitrary linear transfer function (formula is given).

Controllability of $x' = Ax + Bu(t)$ implies controllability of $\left \{ \begin{matrix} x' = Ax + By \\ y'=u(t) \end{matrix} \right.$

Suppose that the system $$x'(t)=Ax(t)+Bu(t)$$ is controllable in $\mathbb{R}^n$, where $A$ is $n \times n$, $B$ is $ n \times m$ and $u(t)$ is $m \times 1$ Show that the system $$\left \{ \begin{...
